I love going to lone elk. They have a 3 mile trail that is great! You get to hike along with the elk and some deer which is awesome. I never really see anyone else on the trail. No pets are allowed for obvious reasons but all and all I find it to be a peaceful relaxing hike.

A great place to visit to see elk, bison and deer. Occasionally you will see turkey and other birds that inhabit the area like hawks, ducks, geese and various song birds. It doesn't take all day and it is adjacent to the World Bird Sanctuary. You could make a day of it.

About 40 minutes from St.Louis airport. It was beautiful with color of the changing season. Saw Elk, Deer and lots of Wild Turkeys. It was terrific. They have many picnic areas so pack your lunch. They have bicycle areas hiking trails and a wildlife viewing center.

We loved seeing all the elk and deer here. The first time we went through we didn't see any bison, but we went back through near sundown and saw multiple bison, including a calf. We loved that they were on the move and saw them coming toward us through the woods and crossed our path and continued into the wood.... More

Saw Bison and Elk and happened in on the camera day for bird sanctuary so we got to see owls & hawks. This place is gorgeous so please put a few dollars in the entry for upkeep- we need places like these!!

Just outside St.Louis. A perfect day trip. Just when we entered the park we saw 2 big elks just sitting and relaxing on the green grass. We saw more Elks, deers, ducks and turkeys inside the park. We couldn't fine any bison though. But we will visit again.

Beautiful park and amazing wildlife. The is a must visit site if you like wildlife and animals. The animals roam in their natural habitat, not in closed cells like some zoo. We saw elk, deers, bisons, rakoon from closest proximity. It's a drive through park and they roam close to road. Awesome experience. There is also a bird sanctuary in... More

This is a very beautiful drive through park. We seen bison, elk, turkey, and ducks! There are warnings to not get out of your vehicle around the bison area. The Elk area had a warning that it was mating season. We were able to get out and see the elk very closely. The best is that you are seeing them... More

We went to see the fall color, but were rewarded with several wildlife sightings: a mother and baby bison, a small group of bison, a lone elk wading in the first lake, a turtle sunbathing in the same lake, a deer along the road, and a deer right by the exit.
